Question details

Question 3. Consider the following decomposition reaction of ethane carried out in a plug flow reactor (PFR) for producing 154.36 gmo/s of ethylene. 216 - > Pure ethane is fed to the reactor at 1100 K and 600 kPa. Calculate the reactor volume necessary to achieve 80% conversion of ethane. 120 Marks Additional data: Reaction rate constant: k at 1100 K (not available) Reaction rate constant: k at 1000 K (0.072 s1) Activation Energy: 82 kcal/gmol
